It's starting to look more and more like a boat!

Please only use the origional bolts, or use 12.9 strength!!!
It would be a major mistake to use std 302 or 304 bolts with a large engine.

They call the stainless bolts "butter bolts" for a reason.

I bet it feels good to see an engine on there.

On height, you might actually be optimal right there. I'm Ryan or someone with the outboard setup will be along shortly to confirm.

they are 316 1/2"x20 stainless bolts from McMaster. I don't believe there is a high strength stainless bolt. There are other "sort of stainless" alloys that are stronger but that's getting kind of esoteric. If I am incorrect please let me know what I should be using.

The only problem on getting advice on the height is I am one of the very few people who are running a single.

I saw this boat online and it looks like they have the engine in the same place I do, 1998 ZODIAC HURRICANE 733 | Boats for Sale

There are specific bolts for these large outboards.

Google "Transom bolts Suzuki". They are like $20ea probably for a reason.

i think they are $20 because they say "Suzuki" on them. Unless they aren't using stainless they can't be any different.

For what it's worth I use standard ss 1/2" bolts and leave 1/2 exposed after my nylocks then cover with rubber boot. Also place a 1 1/2 ss washer in inside of transom. I also set the top cavitation plate In line with the keel.

The work creeps along. Got the old tank top kiwi gripped. My buddy also fabricated the handle for the hatch, so that's ready to get caulked in now.

Engine rigging continues. I keep finding the list if things I needed to get for it. I forgot about the monitoring wiring.

And I have started in the electrical. Interesting what happens when you follow the suzuki rigging instructions and haven't done it before to know better. My battery leads are 17' long and their chart said use 0awg wire, so I did, sigh. That stuff is a tad bit thick. Next time I'd get 13' if 0awg and run the last 4' to the engine with something smaller.

I have a cardboard helm layout that makes me think I can fit everything in the electrical box. I'm just not sure if there will be enough metal between items to mount them.

And I mounted the transom cap, yeah less stuff on the garage floor. That also meant I could put the engine hoist in the shed too.

All the way to the edge it looks like? Just the zinc chromate primer?
